Internship with Congressman Ruppersberger district office in Timonium/Posted Jan. 8, 2019

This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to break into politics and is a fantastic writer:  You get an insight into how a Congressional office operates, see the legislative process in action (we’re on Appropriations, so you get to see how the government is funded-or how it doesn’t get funded!), opportunities to attend meetings and events with staff, and much more. 

We are looking for someone who has Tuesday and Thursday mornings free, but we will work with someone’s schedule if we do decide to bring them on.  The office is just up the road from the University, so the commute isn’t too hard (The TigerRide Shuttle has a Timonium rout that even drops off near our office). 
Interested students can reach out directly to kevin.mcguire@mail.house.gov or 443-624-9957.
